Hundreds of thousands of Ford and Lincoln vehicles recalled
Nearly 830,000 various models of Ford and Lincoln automobiles in the U.S. are under recall due to complaints that occupants may suffer injuries if the door latches malfunction when driving, an August 4 article of CNBC reported.
Reports revealed that the doors of the 828,053 affected vehicles may unlatch during operation and cause injuries to consumers. Previous models of Ford Escape, C-MAX, Focus, Mustang, and recent models of Transit Connect were affected by the recall. Lincoln also issued a recall to previous models of MKC that may have door latch problems. The multinational vehicle manufacturer decided to issue a recall after becoming aware of an accident complaint and an injury caused by the malfunctioning door latches. Ford is offering a free repair to owners of the recalled vehicles and said that the recall focus is in states with unusually high temperatures. Over 60,000 of the recalled vehicles were sold in Mexico.
